  • City taxes don’t deliver much

    MARY HEARST

    A lot is being said about the proposed and adopted annexation by the city officials, and I felt compelled to share my experiences of late as to what has happened to me.

  • Colors of Hope 5K run-walk a smashing hit

    The second annual Colors of Hope 5K was held Saturday June 7. Perfect weather and a large crowd of runners and walkers helped create a very successful family-fun event hosted by New Directions Health & Fitness Club.

    We’d like to thank Teri James and Relay For Life for once again partnering with us. Along with her support and the support of others, we were able to make a sizeable donation to the American Cancer Society once again this year.

  • Tell City Band boosters say thank you

    The Tell City Band Boosters would like to thank everyone who helped make our auction a success.

    A special thank you goes to Scott Dixon of Dixon & Dixon Auctioneers, Kelly Peter, Angie Moseby and everyone who came out to support our auction.

  • EDITORIAL: Keep kids reading to avoid summer slide

    School has been out for a few weeks now, and most kids are enjoying an easier, more carefree schedule.

    Unfortunately, the majority of students have already lost some of the academic gains made during the school year. A good number have even dropped in reading level.

    This decline, coined ‘summer slide’ by educators, refers to learning loss that occurs over summer break. Studies estimate the average student may lose up to a full month’s worth of instruction, dropping in reading aptitude by up to one grade level.

  • Congratulating the Class of 2014

    I recently read through the 2014 graduation supplements in our local papers, and I was so impressed with how involved and driven this year’s graduating class was. I want to congratulate the seniors in our community and their families for achieving this milestone.

    My message to them is that education is something no one can take away from you; it is something you will have for the rest of your life.

  • LETTER: It’s a great day to be a Tell City Marksman

    Both as citizens of the community and members of Tell City Junior-Senior High School, we would like to express our gratitude to the many, many people who have helped revitalize the softball fields in our town.

    In attending some recent softball games, we can feel the pride that our students have in the facility, and the community is very grateful for the work you have given.

    We know there are too many people to list who have volunteered their time and donated their resources to make this happen.

  • LETTER: Council vote created no room for neutrality

    Randy Cole (May 22 story) was correct in his statement that “anyone who declines to sign the petition is on Tell City’s side.” The only way to stop annexation is through remonstrance signatures.

  • COLUMN: County must tackle animal control

    By JAMES CARTER
    Guest Columnist

    This letter is being written as part of a series to inform the general public about existing problems in Perry County dealing with animals. Being involved with the Humane Society, I have done extensive research and found there are no easy solutions.

    What I have found is that in other areas of Indiana people found innovative ways to approach domestic-animal problems and have prevented the problems from getting out of hand.
